Bible Day

This Sunday was a lovely Bible Day. I preached about the Bible and on Psalm 19:7-10. My sermon has been published in Portuguese which I guess you can translate with all the modern means available so as to get the gist of the sermon if you have time.

Young at Heart on Safari

Today has been a great day for the Young at Heart group. It was such a pleasure to take them to Green Pastures for an outing. I wanted to show them at least part of the Reserve and the challenge was how to do this with many of the group using walking sticks, frames and lacking mobility. So I turned it into a sort of motor rally and the Kombi plus other cars followed me round part of the Reserve and did they not half enjoy it! It was a joy!

Then the ones that were able to went in to the pool and we also gave them lots of fruit and later served them lunch etc. It has been a wonderful day. Some of them confessed they couldn't sleep last night as they were so scared to oversleep and miss the outing! Bless their hearts!

Fourteen recent Baptisms

We praise God that the Gospel is being preached and people are coming to Christ. Recent baptisms of new converts have taken place at Juá (below), Soledade, Portelo, Teixeira and Flores. A total of fourteen were baptized. We thank you for your prayers and support. You are our partners in the Gospel in NE Brazil.

A Weekend of Blessing

My trip to preach the Gospel at Curral Velho was blessed of the Lord on Saturday, December 2nd. The church there in that small town/village is progressing well and has expanded the building to house those coming to Christ there. There are now 40 members plus new converts not yet members plus children. PTL! We layed hands on a new deacon in the service too. Here are some photos of the service:

Philip travelled on Saturday as well to preach God's Word at Portelo and that service was mightily blessed of the Lord too. On Sunday it was our monthly communion service in Patos and it was a real blessing too. God is good!

Old Cow Pen this Saturday

I will be speaking at EAB/ACEV's Curral Velho (Old Cow Pen) church this Saturday. I will be having a meeting with the local and regional leaders at 5pm prior to the evening service. Our communications man Ray Santana will be going with me to do the photography. I will be preaching on "Fan into Flame the Gift of God" (2 Timothy 1:6-8). Your prayers are valued.

I led another school group round Green Pastures this morning on another educational nature trail. I altered the normal route to take in more tree shade as the heat is so unbearable in December. Schools can never get there very early which complicates things. But it was good. A family of Tropical Screech Owls posed nicely for them in a tree and a Rock Cavy also posed. The last time we had a light shower of rain at Green Pastures was on July 26th!
